On April 15, 2003 the Mercury News reported that "since February, when the trailers [for "DysFunktional Family"] first surfaced in movie theaters, Sikh organizations such as the Sikh Mediawatch and Resource Task Force have tried to work with Miramax to see the movie first and temper such scenes... in which Griffin points to a turbaned elderly Sikh man walking on the street and shouts, 'Bin Laden, I knew you was around here!'... Not censor, says Preetmohan Singh, director of the Washington, D.C., office of Sikh Mediawatch... They know about the Constitution and freedom of expression, Singh said. 'But corporations need to demonstrate corporate and moral responsibility.'
